shadowfang: Gotcha about the energy types. Though it really doesn't just make much difference. You'll need different type of consoles to boost them but the numbers at the end are identical.
As for just boosting the inherent CritD bonus, won't that essentially just create +1 weapons that are inherently better than any other weapon? Unless you absolutely need Accx3 or CritHx3 these would always be the best weapons possible. They'd had exactly what other weapons have too, just with extra crit oomph.
